Students enrolled at Canada’s acclaimed Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advance learning will be able to take advantage of Toon Boom’s Storyboard and Solo products in their animation labs beginning this year. The first graduating class to use the Storyboard and Solo solutions is scheduled for April 2007, in time to meet the growing demand for animators trained on Toon Boom technology.
“With large studios such as Nelvana, Cookie Jar and Mercury Filmworks using Toon Boom’s products, Sheridan felt there was a pressing need to meet the demand and play a critical part in developing the talent required by the market,” notes Angela Stukator, Associate Dean at Sheridan.
“We are honored to welcome Sheridan Institute in the Toon Boom family and strongly feel that the combination of strong players on the training, technology and production fronts ensures the Canadian animation industry’s vibrancy and reinforces the Canadian reputation of excellence internationally,” says Joan Vogelesang, Toon Boom’s president and CEO.
